Tim Howard has lost his starting job as Everton’s goalkeeper for this weekend’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Bournemouth, manager Roberto Martinez said Friday.

Joel Robles, 25, will start in place of the 36-year-old Howard, who is also a member of the United States national team.

Robles proved to be a viable option in goal for Martinez’s club when Howard was sidelined by a knee injury earlier this month, as he kept a clean sheet in matches against Newcastle and Stoke. Despite Howard’s return to the club following the injury, Robles remained in goal last weekend for a 1–0 loss to West Brom.
